After eight years on the market, Pond House in East Hampton has been purchased and the owners are notable East End regulars.

You can expect to see a lot more of Beyoncé, Jay-Z, Blue Ivy Carter, Rumi Carter, and Sir Carter in the Hamptons because the power couple is reported to be the buyers of the Briar Patch Road estate. The couple paid $26 million for the 12,000-square-foot home that has seven bedrooms and nine bathrooms.

Beyoncé and Jay-Z, who were recently spotted at The Bridge, a rare and vintage car show and art fair at The Bridge in Bridgehampton, have rented in the Hamptons before, but have never owned an East End retreat.

The estate is situated on an elevated two acres of land, adjacent to a 17-acre nature preserve, with 203 feet of water frontage on Georgica Pond. The home was originally constructed by Stanford White a century ago and Jeffrey Collé spent nearly three years "meticulously renovating and enlarging the house with his hallmark blend of exacting Old World craftsmanship and state-of-the-art modern systems, illuminating the property's unique legacy and style," according to Collé's website.

"From the hand-carved heated limestone and marble tubs to the original Louis XV limestone fireplaces, Collé custom designed and sourced every striking element of the house - traveling to Italy and France several times to seek out its rare findings - and all of the woodwork was hand milled on site. The quarter-sawn white oak paneling - a signature Collé detail - glows with a hand-applied French chalk finish, gracefully accenting the hand-pegged parquet de Versailles floors. The elegant sweep of the rooflines seamlessly matches the original period design of Stanford White. Not one exquisite detail has been overlooked: The bathroom marble and limestone was site-selected in Verona, Italy, while the patina-matched tubs, counters and tiles were carved from single blocks of stone by master Italian craftsmen. The pond side 25' by 45' foot infinity-edged pool with stunning water vistas is surrounded by an expansive wraparound terrace of Turkish limestone and an outdoor grilling area," the website states. "Entering the property through a long private lane, the driveway passes under a covered porte-cochère at the front door. Collé paved the majestic, double-height entry hall with French limestone, carefully designed and cast the custom iron railings for the sweeping staircase, and sourced and fashioned handcrafted leaded glass for the diamond-pane windows."

Well, it certainly sounds like a palace fit for Queen Bey and her fam.
